Michael Coppel Presents the B-52’s
DEFINITELY 1 SHOW ONLY
Twenty-five years and over twenty million albums into a career that began as a low-rent lark in Athens, Georgia, the B-52’s remain the most unlikely rock stars ever. The first band to glorify pop culture with an almost Warholian sense of purpose, the B-52’s purveyed their absurd b-movie style and off kilter sound, celebrating the weirdness and wonder lurking just beneath the surface of Americana.
Any mystery concerning the longevity and ongoing appeal of the B-52’s is immediately solved when exposed to the B-52’s unique concert experience. From the timeless gems of “Rock Lobster” “Planet Claire” and “Private Idaho” to the more recent classics of “Love Shack” and “Roam”, the B-52’s unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time the music begins.
Featuring gorgeous harmonies from Kate & Cindy as well as Keith’s punchy guitar riffs, the B-52’s have produced one of the most unique, beloved and timeless bodies of work. Once visionary miners of American pop culture, they are now very much a reference point in the cultural consciousness influencing much of so called modern rock from the low-fi efforts of nouveau garage bands to the retro-hip of ultra lounge to the very core of dance music.
Don’t miss the world’s best party band bringing their ‘good stuff’ down under for the party of the decade when the B-52’s take over the Hordern for their first Australian show in more than 10 years!
